of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Interestingly, it represents a similar move to twin brother, Harry, who’s recently had great success in another Sky show, Penny Dreadful, and with whom Luke has starred on several occasions.
In fact, the pair made their movie debut together in 2005’s Brothers of the Head, playing conjoined rock star twins who share a kiss – a scene we’ve re-watched so many times we almost broke the internet.
Not that Luke is too keen to talk about his twin, demanding to move onto another subject when we ask about them working together again, although he does admit he’d be up for it, in theory.
“I think if it ever does come round again then I’d look at it in the same way that I’d look at any part, but I wouldn’t do something with him just BECAUSE it was with him,” he explains, “and nor would I avoid it. I think he’s a good actor and if there’s a good project for us both to do at some point then I’m sure it’ll happen, but it’s not something I spend much of my time thinking about.”
That may be partly because time is something Luke probably doesn’t have much of. Fortitude debuted on Sky Atlantic less than a month after his film Unbroken – the Angelina Jolie directed POW drama, for which Luke was hand-picked by Mrs Pitt herself – hit cinema screens around the globe.
Between theatre, TV and movies, Luke really is having it all. And, even though we ogle pretty much all of him in Fortitude, we think we’re going to see a heck of a lot more in the next few years.
